La Union Philippine Hotels, plenty to choose from, are they all good?
La Union Philippine Hotels
Basically there are two seasons where the surf in San Juan, La Union is great for surfing. They are during the dry season from the month of May to August and during the typhoon season from the October to March.
It is to be expected that these two seasons are regarded as peak seasons and accommodation in La Union Philippine Hotels may be hard to come by especially during on the weekends.
In order to avoid any disappointment, guests should try to book their La Union accommodation before their trip to San Juan La Union.
San Juan Surf Resort
Established by Luke Landrigan, one of the top surfers in the Philippines, San Juan Surf Resort is one of the more well known La Union Philippine Hotels in the province. This resort is actually located in the barangay of Urbiztondo where all the surfing action is.
There are rooms to suit every taste, from the backpacker to families, and the prices per night are reasonable ranging from 890php for a basic room to 2130php for a villa.
One of the newest La Union resorts is the La Mer Beach Resort
. Prices here are mid range and the resort offers a splendid view of the San Fernando Bay. The rooms are designed with an Ilocano setting which give a distinctive homelike feeling when you step into the room.
However, if you prefer something more budget with a personal touch, then go for Lola Nanny’s
. The accommodation here is nothing much to shout out about, it is actually pretty basic, but what makes the place so special is the stories that Lola Nanny Landrigan (Brian Landrigan’s ex wife) has to share about her time in Australia and about surfing in San Juan, plus the fact that she bakes the meanest meat pies!
La Union Philippine Hotels – 5 Star
Now for those of you that are keen on a little gambling action, then head over to the Thunderbird Resort
located at Poro Point.
Apart from a casino, this 5 star La Union accommodation also features a 9 hole golf course.
